Nato scales back operations with Afghan forces

Nato says it is to restrict operations with Afghan troops following a string of deadly attacks on its personnel by rogue Afghan security forces.

Only large operations will now be conducted jointly, with joint patrols evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Fifty-one Nato troops have been killed by Afghan soldiers so far this year - 15 in August alone.

Richard Lister reports.
